With 30 first places, it is hard to say we are not number one. That is a tribute to all of the hard work of our people and to our clients who continue their faith in us – keeping us at the pointy end of the market as we see the early stages of large scale energy transition and decarbonisation. Even at this early point in the transition, it is great to see us ranked as the top firm in renewables globally and already working on amazing new gigascale hydrogen and battery mandates. Our work for our clients is going to get more and more interesting over the next 28 years to 2050 and these pioneering projects lay the ground work for wider decarbonising efforts that will follow them.
